No download Website 04 Dec 20:51 Seed7 2011-12-04


Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The makefile "mk_djgpp.mak" was improved to work for DJGPP under DOS. The option -?, which writes helping information, was added to the hi interpreter and to the compiler (comp.sd7). The example programs "ftp7.sd7" and "sydir7.sd7" were improved. The directions N, S, W, and E were renamed in the files of the "dnafight.sd7" example program. Result variables were renamed in several files. The interpreter, compiler, runtime library, and the "shell.s7i" library were improved to support the function 'startProcess'. Several functions were improved to use localtime_s() when USE_LOCALTIME_S is defined.

No download Website 04 Dec 18:22 EDFbrowser 1.41


EDFbrowser is a multi-platform viewer for EEG, EMG, and ECG storage files. It supports the EDF, EDF+, BDF, and BDF+ file formats. It supports montages, annotations, precise measurements by using crosshairs, and a zoom function by drawing a rectangle with the mouse. It shows signals from different files at the same time. It includes a built-in EDF/EDF+/BDF/BDF+ to ASCII converter, a built-in Nihon Kohden to EDF+ converter (including annotations), a built in EDF+D to EDF+C converter, a BDF(+) to EDF(+) converter and a built-in EDF/EDF+/BDF/BDF+ compatibility checker.


Release Notes: This release fixes a bug (introduced with version 1.40) that caused it to take a long time to open an EDF+ or BDF+ file when it contained many annotations. It has improved printing quality. On some printers or PDF readers, the signals and rulers were hardly visible because the line width was too small. The ability to set the colors of the averaging window to black/white has been added. The ability to check for and remove duplicate annotations (Tools menu) has been added.

No download Website 04 Dec 18:21 Pomm rc2


Pomm is an object oriented database access framework. It is not an ORM, it is an Object Model Manager. It offers an alternative approach from an ORM to using databases in Web development. It allows developers to leverage PostgreSQL's features to shape data structures which fit business processes while keeping an eye on performance.

Release Notes: This release changes the generated Model files path, adds a Bytea converter, and associates tsvector with String. These changes allowed the generation of the model for the Pagila database, one of the sample databases that can be found on PgFoundry. That's a big win because this database uses a lot of Pg features.

Download Website 04 Dec 18:19 cpdetector 1.0.10


cpdetector is a small yet clever framework for codepage detection that integrates different strategies. It may be used as a library for third party software that accesses textual data over network.

It fixes regression: downloads were not restarting automatically when the Internet connection was back again. It fixes a bug that caused the bouncing cursor to stop only after timeout. A checksum of the file that stores queued downloads is now performed to ensure data integrity. An issue with an incorrect value stored in kwootyrc that could lead to a crash at next kwooty start-up has been fixed. An issue in the yenc decoder that could consider correctly decoded files as corrupted with some yenc encoders has been fixed.

No download Website 04 Dec 16:51 PIT 0.24


PIT is a fast bytecode based mutation testing system for Java that makes it possible to test the effectiveness of your unit tests. You can think of mutation testing as either as an automated test of your tests or as a much more in-depth form of code coverage. Unlike traditional line and branch coverage tools, PIT does not just confirm that your tests execute your code, it confirms that your tests are actually able to detect faults in it.

Release Notes: This release includes support for JMockit, making PIT the only mutation testing system known to be compatible with all the major mocking frameworks (Mockito, EasyMock, JMock, PowerMock, and JMockit). Also included are an improved inline consts mutation operator, a fix for defect 11 (source files in the package default were not properly shown in the report), and the option to output mutation results in XML or CSV format.

Download Website 04 Dec 16:50 SQLObject 1.2.1


SQLObject is an object-relational mapper, i.e., a library that will wrap your database tables in Python classes and your rows in Python instances.

Download Website 04 Dec 16:35 ThSim 2.15


ThSim provides simulation of temperatures in solid material. It uses SPICE to do the actual calculations. An electrical equivalent model is used in order to describe the thermal properties of the entered blocks of solid material. The simulation is limited to conduction; no flow or convection is included. The main usage of this software is to simulate short duration thermal effects of high power dissipation, for instance for semiconductor devices. It allows analyses for short time durations, where measurements are not possible. This tool provides a simple solution for thermal analyses in applications where the additional capabilities of high-end tools for simulation of thermal convection and flow are not necessary. The program uses wxWindows for the GUI and OpenGL for the 3D graphics output.

Release Notes: This release updates OpenGL with zooming (using the mouse wheel) and sliding (using the right button) functions, and fixes a number of bugs.

Release Notes: librdf_new_statement_from_statement() was restored to the original copy semantics, and a new deep copy function was added. Several functions were added for cross-library (DLL) memory management. A few new APIs were added and several bugs fixed.

Download Website 04 Dec 16:29 rho 1.0.34


Rho is a small, very powerful console-based POSIX text editor and mini-IDE with Bash/Emacs key bindings. A configuration file allows the user to create macros using not only any internal function but anything available to a shell command. Keyboard macros (Ctl-Alt-A through Z) can be sourced into the editor for each kind of task, the next sourcing overwriting the last. Rho also allows an unlimited number of templates (sh, awk, python, etc.) to be injected into executable buffers which trap stdout and stderr.


Release Notes: This release adds and documents $compiler as a compiler command-string envar. It adds make() which executes $compiler in a subshell and make_clean() which executes "make clean" in a subshell. On error, make opens a second window and reads in a log of stderr. This is a first draft of a compile-cycle function.
